vote for me!

for those of you that don't know, my husband and i got married last september... we just celebrated our 6 month anniversary on saturday - woohoo! we kind of threw together our wedding at the last minute, but everything fell into place and it ended up being completely perfect! i recently entered some of our wedding photos into the knot's real wedding awards contest. the photos with the most votes will be featured in the knot magazine! help us out and check out our entry (and vote for us!) here:




spring is almost here!

daylight savings time... for me, the unofficial start of spring! new haven is finally starting to thaw out, and that extra hour of daylight just makes me feel like there's so much time in the day! i can't wait til the leaves start to come out and i can turn off the heat and open all the windows.

this time of year just makes me feel inspired. so i have been doing something i haven't done in a long time... drawing! i am working on some mixed media illustrations that i hope to offer up as prints in my shop in the near future. expect to see some flowers, birds, and other symbols of spring popping up soon!

in honor of the change of seasons, i also did a bit of etsy shopping. here is what i bought:

this amazing rayon challis cloche from lizareitz. i have had my eye on it for a while, and i can't wait to rock it every day this spring :)

this lovely pillow from appetitehome, which is really going to brighten up my couch!

that's all for now, happy almost-spring everyone!
